Welcome to the Rotary Club of Dripping Springs web site.  We invite you to take a look around our site and to find out more about our club and about Rotary International.  If, after considering what we offer you and the community, you would like to look into membership, suggest a project or are interested in speaking for the club, please contact us here.

The Rotary Club is a service organization focusing on local and international needs.  Locally, we have sponsored projects such as:

 * Hosted the first Dripping Springs Home and Garden Show

 * Supports DS High School Interact Club

 * Awards scholarships to DS High School students

 * Supporting the local food bank

 * Helping a local center for disadvantaged youths with repairs and improvements

 * Annual tribute to veterans on Veteran's Day. 

 * Support Polio Plus

To pay for all of this we raise funds through dues, and various fund raisers. All of our activities are open; we have no secrets and we are proud of who we are.  We enjoy our Rotary membership and seek to support our community and the greater good through service.  After all, the motto of Rotary is "service above self," and we seek to embody that.

We meet Monday at noon at Flores Mexican Restaurant, two miles or so east of Dripping Springs on Highway 290.  We conduct club business, have social time for the members and have a wide variety of speakers discussing issues that impact our community, our country, or internationally.

Stop by, you don't need a reservation, or drop us a note and we will answer any questions about our club.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
